When I started this site in 2007 the original idea was to feature the fire apparatus of the four fire departments closest to where I work – Cincinnati, Blue Ash, Montgomery and Sycamore Township. From this limited scope, the site has now grown to encompass many departments in Hamilton, Butler and Warren Counties, and now includes coverage of EMS, command / support vehicles and historical apparatus.
The site’s mission has grown and expanded significantly over the last couple of years. It now includes showcasing the latest fire apparatus from the departments that are covered, providing detailed fire department information and acting as a historical preservation resource.
There is a specific emphasis on the Cincinnati Fire Department since I am very involved with the CFD through Box 13 Associates.
Many thanks to the men and women of the fire service, and to all those who have helped by pulling out rigs and providing detailed apparatus and department information.
